Unfolding of Selves by Kiminjo Unfolding of Selves by Kiminjo
(Image and writing: 2006)
This drawing manifested from my attempt to create a visual synergy of the heart and third-eye chakras. A sensitive viewer will see a large, subtle figure amidst the hills, rain, and clouds in the background. The figure's third eye is located precisely at the transitioning sun, and the heart is located precisely at the smaller figure at the bottom. So in a sense, the vines flowing from the smaller figure are radiating life energy from the heart of the larger figure, interwoven with the curved columns opening the rainy sky to the clear night.

hmm... well I know old people block out things that wont benefit them like death and sick images. they don't see them in flashes youth can remember things they don't and vice versa I think.

images that aren't one dimensional or the same color hidden in macro shades. on a your time is up kinda way yeah that's it... There will be a time limit locking system that then... I'll have to get down the average amount of time it takes for a person to see things and under different influences. In the right environments. It will be a game of fine art. This could lead to a more complex mind game. Or why does it have to just a mind game. It could be anything introducing and understanding threw the mind game new worlds of different peoples liking. Ipv6 The number six is crazy.

When you say that a sensitive viewer will see a certain something that sparked an Idea that's still evolving I don't yet know or have chosen an objective for it but it's going somewhere vast.Yeah, I thought you were going to start listing different things different kinds of people would see. Wouldn't that be cool to know these tendencies for these types of people and connect them to a river or vine or tributary or string-attached-arrow kinda way that leads to a pointing portrait of there kind. Reveling who they are in a polite way or in the right way to make them more aware of themselves and to teach the ability to then see everything and everyone equally. I left some stuff out I really can't explain it too well I shall have to dig it up with my paint brush. I think that's what I'm doing with the hexagons but then They will also be exploring the different dimensions on there own.

Oh this could go with that idea I had about codes and interactive puzzles. It's like if you see something you then have that key or image to relate to another image then part of the painting slides out reveling another image and that image becomes you. Hmm, no there is a problem having those images out in the open will be to much stimuli. It would have to be on a different plane or milked through a narrative story about a knight demon sickco bum king grotesque beautiful... to be continued.

This work in particular (along with others in your gallery) says 'ayahuasca' to me ... the flourescence of the subjects I think, the fact that you use black paper imbues the drawings with light and really enlivens it .. which also makes me think - your stuff would rock in uv also :)

You should sell this as a print as well.
What medium was this done in?

This reminds me of the organic, flowing, fractal nature of the S. Divinorum experience.

Interesting. I can now see that in the drawing, though I hadn't before. As implied in the title, I see a fluid-like unfolding of the different elements, which resembles the actual process of making it. I began with the figure at the bottom, and the rest "unfolded" upward, until I finished by adding the larger figure near the middle. It reminds me also of visions I have read about of ayahuasca, although I have not done it so I couldn't say from personal experience.

It's very interesting, I like how the entire picture is like a reflection in the ripples of the water, awesome job.
